Description:
Scarce 1809 Cohen-2 Half Cent
1809 1/2 C Normal Date. C-2, B-3, Low R.3. Die State 2--Reverse Corroded--NCS. Unc Details. XF40 EAC. Close date, 1 slightly high; High leaf just beyond S, ES high. This is the Manley Plate Coin for the variety. Of the five 1809 half cent varieties that were known to Gilbert, this is clearly the most difficult to locate, and is especially so in higher grades. The Roger Cohen Collection, for instance, contained five examples of this variety, but only two reached the grade of Very Fine. There are currently only a couple truly Mint State examples known, despite six different coins recorded by Walter Breen.
The obverse is cracked through stars 9 to 13 and into the field below star 13. No other evidence of obverse die cracks appear on this example. Reverse weakness and light corrosion does not permit viewing of the small rim break in the dentils between D and S. Sharply detailed with pleasing olive coloration on both sides. Tinges of light gold have faded from red mint color. An obverse scratch starts at Liberty's chin and extends right through the hair curls to star 10. The reverse has considerable deep red color over ED STAT, from the removal of old corrosion. Specialists will want to consider this lot carefully, as similar quality examples will seldom appear on the market. Breen Die State IV.
Ex: Jim McGuigan (3/12/1985). Envelope Included.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 222P, PCGS# 1123)
